Estimation of The Source Mechanisms of Microseismic Events from a Barnett Shale play
The waveforms generated during hydraulic fracturing in unconventional oil and gas reservoirs contain information about the nature of the failures that gave rise to the observed wave fields. Inverting for the moment tensor ...
MICROSEISMIC MONITORING: PHYSICAL MODELING AND SOURCE CHARACTERIZATION
This research investigates some fundamental aspects of microseismic monitoring: location and source mechanism. We developed a ray-tracing and diffraction-stack procedure to determine source locations. The location algorithm ...
Correlstion between the volume of slurry and the volume of fracture in Barnett Shale
Microseismic fracture mapping has revealed that large fracture networks can be generated in many shale reservoirs and create multiple of plan complex structure. The ultra-low permeability in Barnett shale requires hydraulic ...
